Backing Better.

Financial support for UK real estate developers

Welcome home

Silbury provides real estate development finance for professional developers seeking to acquire and build residential, retirement and student-living units in the UK.

Led by a highly experienced team, we are backed by global alternative investment management firm Oaktree Capital Management and have significant capital resources to support developments through to completion.

Because all our capital is discretionary, we have the ability to react quickly and efficiently, from initial review through to completion and ongoing funding.

Our focus on the living sector is driven by a conviction that demand for residential units will continue to increase driven by structural demographic trends including population growth, smaller households and increased life expectancy.

A fresh approach
to finance

What we do

Silbury creates tailored financing solutions to help developers deliver residential schemes, retirement villages and student-living communities.  

Silbury’s client-focused approach produces truly bespoke financing. We support developers striving for excellence in the living sector.

Development Finance
We offer senior or stretched senior loans up to 70% LTGDV or 90% LTC (excluding interest).

Silbury-funded projects vary in size, from 15 units or fewer, to many hundreds of units. Our typical loan size ranges from £10 million to £300 million.

Funding is available for for-sale developments as well as units retained for rent. This covers the full residential sector, from traditional flatted schemes to multi-phase housing plots, retirement living schemes, PRS and student accommodation.

We are happy to provide finance at the point of property acquisition, or later in the build. We can either fund costs to complete, or we can refinance loans.
